“Nice hotel in a bad location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

The hotel is new, the room is large, the free airport shuttle is convenient, the free internet is fast. I have nothing to complain about the hotel itself, except the location is far from the shopping and restaurants.
I booked the hotel from price line's name your own price for "fort lauderdale downtown" area. Well, this hotel's location can not be qualified as downtown as there is nothing going on near it. If you don't rent a car, you are pretty much stucked.

This was one of our shortest hotel stays ever. We checked in and out within a 6 hour period. We won this on Hotwire for around $100. It was rated 3 1/2*, near the airport, with a 95% recommendation rating. We called for the hotel's shuttle to pick us up. They said they'd be there within 15 minutes, but it was at least 30 minutes before we were picked up, at around 11:30pm. We were not charged for shuttle service, but I'm not sure that standard. The hotel is new and very nice. I love the contemporary design and decorating. Unfortunately, we arrived hungry and there were no restaurants within sight. The nearest restaurant is at least a 15 minute walk. One of the two desk personel handed us a menu for an Italian restaurant that delivers. That worked out great and the food was actually good. The morning shuttle only ran every two hours. Unfortunately that meant we had to take the 5am shuttle for a 7am flight. The shuttle left on time, making a stop at the Holiday Inn down the road, and then the airport, 10 minutes later. This place is fine for short stay.

We chose this hotel after an evening flight and late arrival into Fort Lauderdale. The shuttle was prompt, and its a quick ride to the hotel from the airport. Our room was large, very clean, and nicely decorated. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The pool area was quite nice. We would definitely stay here again.

I have been a Platinum Holiday Inn member for many years and selected this hotel primarily for the free parking offered to Platinum guests and the proximity to the cruise port. Check in was a little surprising because there is no "lobby" as in most hotels. You enter through the parking entrance and there were two podium desks and people to check you in. With no lines, check in was quick and we were shown to a very nice room offered as an upgrade. While the short distance to the cruise port was an advantage, if you are there as a local tourist the local area did not appear to offer much nearby. For our purposes it was fine - a small bar/restaurant, adjacent convenience store (including good cookies and muffins in the morning) and a nice pool deck with view off the port. The hotel will arrange shuttle service to the port or the airport, which proved efficient getting to the ship. On return, the easiest option was the long line of waiting taxis as we left the ship and customs area.

My husband is from Fort Lauderdale and we are very picky about where we stay. We tried this hotel because we decided to arrive a day early. What a great hotel. Very modern and clean. Pool was a nice little area with a patio for drinks connected. Parking was convenient ($10.00 charge, but worth it) Room was clean and spacious. Could not have asked for more!

We stayed here pre-cruise....comfortable room, good breakfast, clean and modern room. Nothing really within walking distance but a very efficient shuttle service to the cruise port.

We stayed here following our cruise. Updated modern rooms and design of the hotel. The room and entire facility was clean. Nice pool area. The staff was very accommodating as they allowed us to use the pool prior to our room being ready, as well as before our late flight the next day. If you are using the hotel following or prior to a cruise, make sure you have transportation from the port to the hotel...was misleading, but a cheap cab ride from port to hotel.
